Adventures in Bitcoin: Who is Satoshi Nakamoto and what have they created?

Adventures in Bitcoin: Who is Satoshi Nakamoto and what have they created?

This event is exclusive to Friends of Tortoise


For many people, the tale of Bitcoin, the world’s first decentralised crypto-cyrrency is mysterious to say the least. When Elon Musk added “#bitcoin” to his Twitter profile earlier this year, and only days later his firm Tesla bought $1.5bn worth of the currency, the value of Bitcoin surged +17%. The vast majority of live Bitcoin transactions involve only a very small portion of the limited supply of the currency. Very soon, there simply won’t be any more new Bitcoin left to buy.

Join us for a ThinkIn in which we’ll explore a tale of non-existent money, invented by a person/people who may or may not be real, generated by computers, that enables real people to make untraceable transactions online. What could possibly go wrong?
